    Ground flax seed is an excellent, excellent source of fat.
    TBH I'm not sure about the fiber content.. I know that it has some, but i'm not sure if you can make up for not having whole grains with it.

    (Oh and you're welcome, hope you find it helpful!)

    Frankly I think vitamins are a personal choice. I wouldn't supplement with fat soluble vitamins(think Vit. D) too much though. They can be toxic if you ingest too much.

    Try doing some strength training to gain muscle, while eating a lot of carbs

How long have you had this weight to height ratio? Have you experienced any of the symptoms of emaciation?

    On one hand, it's better safe than sorry, so I woud encourage you to continue seriously looking into this. On the other hand, I see a lot of fat people, and my doctor was fat. I feel fine and have always been this way, but I am so abnormal in this society that I think it is essentially assumed that I'm unhealthy. It might be the same way with you.
    yeah, some people just have fast metabolisms and are born to be weedy, no matter what they eat.
    the "normal" weight seems to have increased with the average weight, unfortunatley. im sure people who are skinnier than they should be are more vulnerable to fatigue, organ failure and disease, but im not sure if it still applies to people who are naturally skinny.

    Gotta admit, I'm jealous of you guys who effortlessly stay thin. I personally don't want to be model thin though, prefer toned women. (not that you are)

    Crazy how different bodies the same height react. I'm about 5'7" 1/2 and got down to 115 at one point awhile ago. I was semi-anorexic eating 1000 calories a day for prolly 5 months. My period stopped for several months. I could put my ankles together and my legs didn't touch at all all the way up. I got really bony and could feel my ribs all the way across my chest. Ok ok TMI I know! Some of my hair came out in half handfulls. Usually I weigh about 150, although my preferred weight is probably about 135-140.

    Update: I haven't really gained much in the past few weeks after upping my caloric intake. I think my body is still changing and my appetite isn't what it used to be. (I used to eat enough for 2-3 adults but now I eat the bare minimum for 1 adult ).

    Awhile ago, the year I was 16. VERY difficult time my whole family was going through. I think diet and exercise became the one outlet which I could control. I didn't know I was doing anything wrong, just read about some lady on internet who ate next to nothing and thought I'd try it. Felt pretty tired and weak all the time. Ended up actually moving that year and started seeing a counselor. That's the nutshell version.

    But again, I find it interesting how I'm an inch shorter than Poriferan but my body reacted so differently when I was her weight.

    i think if you just eat everything your body needs, including calories, there won't be anything wrong with you. the trouble is with anneorexics (god my spelling is appauling) is that their body gets weak. their bones can be easily shattered, their teeth fall out, etc.
    but something that strikes low fat people indiscriminatley is insulation. they should stay protected from very cold temperatures.

    that is interesting. i guess the difference is, you were depriving yourself of nutrients and calories while MP was not, his body just burns it all.

    don't you hate people who eat more then you but are still skinnier
